In nearly every case, a drowning or near drowning has devastating consequences on the victims and their families. The endless shoreline, murky waterways and countless swimming pools make drowning the leading cause of death of children under five in the State of Florida and one of the leading causes of death for adults as well. Near drownings can cause brain damage resulting in long-term problems ranging from memory loss and learning disabilities to the permanent loss of basic functioning.
Owners of private "backyard" pools and spas are responsible for providing a safe environment for children and adults alike. Public pools such as community pools, Apartment pools and Hotel/Motel pools are also subject to stringent safety codes and regulations. Most swimming pool injuries occur because of improperly designed and constructed pools, failure to properly secure a pool from small children, and failure to maintain the swimming pool in good condition. These safety codes and regulations often impose similar safety requirements upon owners of private and commercial property located near ponds, lakes and waterways.
